Not big on New Year's Resolutions, this year I'm simply adopting a half-glass-full kind of policy. There's really no point thinking any differently.
In light of recent events we discussed the positives to come from the week just gone.
Matthew could very easily have had fingers completely severed in his shed incident.
Sally, who happened to be riding backwards (let's not even go there), could very easily have been kicked during her descent, with far worse injuries.
And then to top off the vast amount of time I've spent in orthopaedic surgeon's waiting rooms this past week, I managed to photograph a recipe in one of the magazines and put it to good use this weekend.
So what could be better than one ring of profiteroles?
Why, two of course.
And what could be better than that?
Cherry cream filling, and chocolate coating ... that's what!
See ... every cloud has a silver lining.
